Challenge

UDOT was using a 14-year-old, homegrown client-server system that was obsolete and very difficult to update. The old system was accessible only within the state’s firewall and was slowing down UDOT’s construction contracting community. The evaluation team wanted a new SaaS product, but knew it would need to integrate with the existing on-site systems for bidding, civil rights, certified payroll, and enterprise project management.

Solution

Aurigo Masterworks Cloud was selected through the competitive RFP process because of its modern SaaS technology, breadth of functionality and ease of use. UDOT has fully implemented Construction Project Management, Contract Management and Materials Management products, and is rolling out Aurigo’s Estimation and Bidding and Civil Rights products. UDOT has over 3,000 users accessing the Aurigo Masterworks Cloud system.

Impact

Aurigo Masterworks is the unified system that shares information across business divisions within UDOT as well as with contractors and external stakeholders. The Masterworks system has generated a sense of collaboration across business units, enhanced the quality of work, increased productivity and deeply reduced the errors in all UDOT’s projects.  Based on an economic analysis, UDOT is saving $19.5M annually (or $100M over five years) from greater visibility, increased control during planning, construction and maintenance, and better reporting.

The Aurigo Masterworks Cloud has replaced the labor-intensive, paper-based methods used for recording contract administration activities from the time of award to completion of construction. Masterworks provides the necessary tools for staff and external service providers to electronically capture, store, and transmit field records and date through automation. Masterworks facilitates the monitoring of contract documentation, contract quality, contract costs, and overall project transparency.”
